Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan
To meet targets set by the national Government, local planning authorities, in our case East Riding of Yorkshire Council, have created Local Plans. This is their vision for the future development of the whole area. Town and Parish Councils can add to this through the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan. These ensure that local knowledge is used when considering planning applications.
Cottingham Parish Council, in consultation with partners, have created such a plan. We believe that, with this plan in place, we would be able to maintain the character of Cottingham as a ‘Market Village’. The plan is put before the public at a referendum which will be taking place on Thursday 15th February 2018. So:
If you care about where you live then
Vote ‘Yes’ for the Cottingham Neighbourhood Plan
Until further notice the Parish Office will only be open to the public on a Tuesday and Wednesday 11am to 3pm.

Cottingham, in East Yorkshire, is reputedly the largest village, in population terms, in England and can trace its roots back to Anglo Saxon times.
We would like to welcome you to the Cottingham Parish Council website and we hope that you will find it very useful and informative about our Village.
The Parish Council was established in May 1999 and has 11 elected councillors. We hope that this Website will provide useful information and further enhance communication between Cottingham Parish Council and the residents of Cottingham. The whole purpose of the Parish Council is to safeguard the well-being of Cottingham and of its residents. If you have any issues or concerns about anything affecting the village please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Council Office.
The Parish Council is made up of a number of committees. The work of these committees is supported through the dedicated work of voluntary groups, residents and outside support agencies and organisations.
